Not bad for the price

Had a Light Cannon that gave 7 years of great service. Had 3 hiccups with it... 1 bulb needed to be replaced and was 89 bucks, had the head unit go and was replaced under warranty, and the last time out it flooded and the light was DOA. I purchased a C8 because I could not pony up 199 + the fear of purchasing a 89+ bucks a bulb when it goes. Yes it is bright.. but to me not worth the cost. Diving NJ wrecks I find the C8 plenty of light. And if you drop it, smash it, or loose it... don't ...

Not impressed

Overall construction seems good. Time will tell... Brightness is less than expected but is okay. The light beam is not focused so that a direct beam illuminates a specific spot. The real problem I find is the switch to turn on. It is cumbersome at best and would be a real pain with gloves. Seems flimsy and pivots left or right when a small locking cap is pulled out. This will not be my go to light. Sincerely, 36 year Advanced Diver & Instructor.

Great Light

By

from Austin, TX, US

This is a great hand held light with a spot and flood setting. I've taken it on 3 dives now and am very pleased. I've got about 3 hours on the first set of batteries now and they appear to still be very strong. So far the burn time on them appears like it may be as stated.

element quality

By

from san diego, CA, US

not happy to find one bulb burnt out already, have not checked yet but I don't imagine they are cheap to replace. while validating your ad's claims, I had hoped to get more than a few uses before I was buying new bulbs. and I don't even dive, I work on boats and only wanted a very strong and RELIABLE lite to see at night. at this price level I expected better. when it worked It put out great light.
